Ahead of the release of A level and AS level results this Thursday, I’d like to clarify the process for you to follow on the day.
Please collect your results online
Since contacting you last month, and having further reviewed the process for collecting results in line with current safety guidance, we have decided that, for the safety of all, students should collect their results online, rather than coming into College.
We have been experiencing some technical issues with the Portal in the past few days, so in order to ensure you are able to collect your results without delay we have set up a dedicated website, for which you will have unique login details.
You can login now to test this if you like, but you will only be able to view your results from 8am on Thursday 13th August.
Follow this link to access the webpage www.bramptoncollegeresults.co.uk
You have been sent instructions by email with the information you need in order to access your results:
I sincerely hope that you will all receive the results you deserve, but I trust the information below will offer some reassurance as to the options open to you, and the support available, if this is not the case.
What if I need to speak to a member of the Careers team or to my teachers?
Our Careers team and all teaching staff, including myself and Mike, will be available on Thursday 13th to support students, but in order to ensure your safety and that of others, and to manage the number of people in College at any one time, we will be operating an appointments system. If you feel you do need an appointment with Sarah or Bina, or any other member of staff on Thursday, please ring the College after 8am that morning and we will give you a time to speak to them either in College or over the phone.
What if there is an issue with my university place?
Although both Sarah and Bina will be happy to offer their advice, it is important to remember that the universities and UCAS will want to speak directly to you, not to a member of our staff (or to a parent), so you will need to be prepared to make these calls yourself. However, we remain keen to proactively engage with universities, particularly where grades have been unreasonably adjusted, and will do everything we can to help ensure that you obtain your place at university.
What about clearing?
Step-by-step instructions on navigating the clearing process are available on the Careers page on Google Classroom via this link https://classroom.google.com/c/MTc2MDYxNzU4NDRa , plus specific guidance for Medicine, Dentistry and Veterinary students can be found on our Medical Forum page here https://classroom.google.com/c/MjQwNDEzNTA5OTRa
What are my options if I’m unhappy with my grades?
If you are concerned about your results there are two options, beyond clearing, that we can consider. Ofqual have provided guidance on how the College can appeal to the exam boards on your behalf, which you can view via this link Appeal arrangements for AS, A levels and GCSEs. There is also the option to take so-called autumn re-sit exams this October.
What if I was entered for GCSE exams?
Please follow the same process as above to obtain your results via our dedicated Brampton Results webpage on Thursday 20th August.
Results day should be a special time of celebration, and it is regrettable that the current crisis means that we will not be able to welcome all students and their families into the College this Thursday as we have in previous years. However, please be assured that we will do our utmost to support you on the day, if needed.
